    Paul Simon

    Huge influence on my songwriting and guitar playing since I first heard Graceland and the S&G Central Park concert but from what I’ve read about him, I wouldn’t want to be stuck in an elevator with him. Sorry, Paul.

    I can see your house from here.
    I don't care for curmudgeons of any type.
    Neil Young seems awfully open minded and active for a curmudgeon.

    I used to enjoy curmudgeonly. Not anymore. Plenty of filth being spewed by folks I used to respect happens in daily life now that everyone thinks their opinion is fact.

    I’m a curmudgeon and I don’t particularly like other curmudgeons in my space.

    Joe Bonamassa's fans are curmudgeonly.

    Joe Perry, Neal Schon or Ritchie Blackmore. All great players but reputed to be A-holes from time to time.

    Comes to a fight or cuttin' head on guitar, my money's on Uncle Ted:



    Even with one hip replaced, he'd kick all their butts. And make jerky out of what's left.

    The original grumpy old rock star, Rick Wakeman. His tales from the road are hilarious.

    Yeah, I'm probably using a very soft-hearted definition of 'curmudgeon'.

    Rick Derringer.

    He was my original guitar hero back in the mid-1970's.

    His interviews nowadays are always good, but there's no denying he's an old feller.
    But I still love and admire him.

    :)

    Donald Fagan comes to mind- read his book Eminent Hipsters- I really liked it but he comes across as curmudgeonly

    John Lydon, sorry John, but your quasi punk attitude doesn't wash these days, and taking your ex band mates to court over the use of the bands music, when you could be earning money from the Sex Pistols back catalogue, seems like shooting yourself in the foot.

    I'm with you, he's just kind of out there, and old.

    Lou Reed certainly deserves a mention.
